I've lost the count of how many times I've read this book. It's witty and funny, with in addition a flavour of romanticism. With Pride and Prejudice, this is the book I use to fight bad mood!

...eppure per tutto il tempo mi piaceva Cecilio. M'affascinava il suo distacco assoluto , la pignoleria minuta di un uomo immobile.. che fa supporre mondi sconosciuti ma che a bene vedere c'è la eco del nulla...proprio come il mio ex marito
